There is an exciting update for you from Twitter!
If you haven’t been able to test it out yet, then your timeline has probably been inundated with what seem to be a bunch of random circles with people’s faces on them and Tweets from people begging to have Twitter Circle.
If you have no clue what it actually is, let me explain.
We totally get it – people enjoy occasionally spilling the tea, sharing personal news and updates and letting their hottest takes roam free on the timeline for everyone to see, but sometimes they just want to talk with a smaller crowd: AKA their circle.
After much anticipation, everyone on Twitter will now have the ability to do just that with Twitter Circle — a new feature that’s launching to everyone globally today, which allows you to choose who can see and engage with your content on a Tweet-by-Tweet basis.
All you have to do is select up to 150 people who will be able to view and interact with the Tweets you don’t want to share with everyone, and choose Twitter Circle as your audience when publishing a Tweet.
Then you’re all set to say what you gotta say, share spoilers without ruining it for everyone else and unleash your weird without fear of embarrassment – all in the privacy of your own circle. And if you’re new to Twitter, what a perfect way to get your feet wet and give it a go with a smaller crowd before making your debut on the public timeline!
“I love Twitter Circle because we all have those Tweets that we don’t want the entire world to see so it’s nice to be able to have a space where we can share and laugh with the people we are in community with! Twitter Circle eliminates the fear of the wrong person seeing the wrong Tweet and has allowed me to connect more honestly and purposefully with my followers which is what Twitter is all about.” – @itszaeok
I love Twitter Circle because it allows you to curate a community within your community. Someone like me who has a larger platform can’t always be as open and connected with my friends the way I want to on Twitter, so this allows me to be able to connect with my broader audience, as well as my personal friends all on the same timeline! – @seangarrette
